Hey everyone! With the large number of blogs (growing everyday), and the new emphasis toward #FOAMed, we decided to do a weekly post w/ highlights from around the interwebs. We tried to find a few that are still relavent at the med student level, and especially important as we slowly head toward the transition between medical student and residency.
We always have cool posts and interesting articles linked on our Twitter, so join us there too!
